    [quote=nightnurse7;2112160] Quick shifts expect calls for short shifts. A total lack of sleep is a definite requirement & still expected to function at 100% no mistakes. then expect the very worst pts behaviour & at the end of the shift leave with a smile. Hows that for a initiation LOVE Barb

    [quote=Grace Oz;2108736]G'day Gwenith lovely to hear from you but can the state stand the presence of 2 out going people in it LOL . there may be level 5 restrictions but its because the southern states stole all the water. Darn this lack of a hot shower is really marking its mark its almost getting to the stage of filtered mouth pieces. Hmmmmm slight exeration but you know how it is every thing is bigger in the sunshine state. We certainly have the biggest mouths in the country but thats politics for you.
    Now what happening - Hmmmmmmmm nothing another topic closed
    Love to all Barb

    Wow, now i am in the right place.

    Hey guys, i want to ask if what should i do first in applying for registration in Victoria (Board of Nurses). A little background of me, i have had my licensed as a registered nurse here in the Philippines, last June 2007 and now doing my charity (volunteer) in a public hospital, i started last week. And i plan to pass my application for assessment in Victoria to be a registered nurse. Do you think it would be okay to apply eventhough i don't have that 12 months work paid experience in a hospital. And which states in Australia by the way has the easiest way for us overseas nurses?

    Thank you very much
